Homeomorphic solutions of a Beltrami differential equation

  • Olli Lehto


This lecture concerns the existence and mapping properties of homeomorphic solutions of a Beltrami differential equation. During the last ten years, much attention has been devoted to various proofs of the existence theorem. These proofs have often been of independent interest, producing important side results. Thus it might be worth while to make again a few remarks of some of the methods recently applied in this connection.
